Our outlook for the first fiscal quarter is supported by strength in the mobility and automotive markets plus initial revenue contributions from the Diamondx. While macroeconomic conditions have caused some customers to hold off on capital purchases, others remain in a steady pace of capacity expansion. As we begin the new fiscal year, our product lineup, focus on key market segments and new business development opportunities should lead to year-over-year growth."
